The Portland News is authority for
the following: “It is said the condition
of the men working at the big mills at
Port Blakely on the sound is but little
better than that of the slaves of the
south before the war. There is need of
a little wholesome American legislation

W ashington , Dec. 15.—The surprise
of the day has been the action of the
house committee to territories, in order
ing a favorable report on the bill for ad
mission of Washington and Montana in
to the Union, after so many methods
have been resorted to to prevent action.
The pending question was Hermann’s
motion to order the chairman to make
a favorable rejMirt, but this was opposed
by Springer, who proposed as a substi
tute the bill introduced by him Monday,
providing an enabling act for Dakota,
Washington, Montana and New Mexico.
Hermann made a long appeal in favor
of his motion, and was followed in the
same strain by linker of New York,
Symes of Colorado, am] Struble of Iowa.
A vote being taken, all the republicans
and two ¿emocrats voted aye. The re
maining democrats refrained from voting
so that they might not be committed to
admission on the floor of the house.
As passed by the senate, the bill to
admit Washington provides thatafter the
adoption of a consitution, as provided
by law, the president shall issue a pro
clamation declaring the territory admit
ted into the Union. Springer moved to
make the senate bill the basis of the
report, bill to amend the above as fol
lops : “That the constitution to be fram
ed in each territory shall be submitted
to congress for its final action.” Alter

A gentleman named Saunders, who
acquired some distinction a while ago
by killing a man at Albany, is to have
a new trial, on the ground tnat when on

law are not for enforcement of justice,
but for the protection of the criminal.
It would seem, says the Oregonian, as
if the state presently would be under the
necessity of apologizing to Mr. Saunders
as an abused and persecuted man. Be

It is generally believed that diploma
tic questions of grave importance will
soon arise between the United States
and Mexico, growing out of the position
taken by President Cleveland against
the right of Mexico to try Americans
committing offences against Mexican
law while on American soil. The news
papers of all shades of opinion stand by
the government in this matter, on the
ground that the principle is a sound one
and approved by some of the most high
ly civilized nations in the world.

that a state of single blessedness is good
enough for him, and will have nothing
